Fodor's Expert Review Bacchus

$$$ Grand Case French Fodor's Choice

The best wine importer in the Caribbean, Benjamin Laurent, and his wife Magali have built a lively, immaculate, deliciously air-conditioned wine cellar that also happens to serve outstanding starters, salads, and main courses made from top ingredients brought in from France. The place is well worth the effort it may take to find it, in the Hope Estate commercial area south of the main road (Deviation de Grand Case). Everything is lovingly prepared. You can also buy gourmet groceries, delicious chocolates, nougats, organic and herbal teas, or roam their spirits corner for rum and liquor. Naturally, the wines are sublime, there may be a waiting time (nobody cares since the cuisine is so superb), and you can get an amazing education along with a great lunch. You'll find it across from the road that leads to the Grand Case airport. Bacchus opened a separate bakery in the Aventura Mall, just steps from the restaurant and wine emporium, where you will find their famous fresh baked breads and French pastries.
